      Thank you for the kind words and the support we received throughout this campaign!

      We WILL RETURN, bigger and stronger and we hope you'll join us again. If even half of you come back for the relaunch we'll have a fantastic first day that will put us on the map!

      Until then, we will continue to work on the finishing touches for Into the Black: Boarding Party (final rules edits, examples and scenarios) as well as some nice surprise additions that we've been working on for some time now (this gives us a chance to fully develop them)!

      Sorry it didn't make the funding level. I was really intrigued with the game. I'll be watching and hoping for you to give it another try, hopefully we'll get it next time.

      It's too bad this didn't fund. This looks like a fun game. I bet if everyone pledged on a new KS this would fund pretty quickly, or get real close within the first days. I'll be keeping an eye out if this pops up again.

      This really bites. We were looking forward to this game. We are following you so when you do this again, we will be on board. Please do it again, you were really close.

      Well, this is a real bummer. I was really looking forward to this one, for the 2nd time.

      You know I'll back you when you launch again.

      One last preview has come in for the campaign! Better late than never aye?

      @Joachim Indeed! Let's keep the ball rolling!

      So many more things to make for this trilogy franchise (yes, because everything is better as a trilogy!) including a Sequel, a Prequel, the Epic Encounters expansion, additional playable characters, scenarios, campaign mode .. all in various stages of development and testing, but none of which are worth the paper they are on until Boarding Party hits backers tables!

      A nice little boost since the 48h countdown mark!

    9. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 26

      I don't know if it's been posted to any Minis groups tbh. We hadn't considered minis groups with the obvious lack of minis in the game (If you ask me, I'd happily count cardboard standees as "minis" ;) )

      Been posting about yall to my Associations and other groups. Trying to get some traction going. Anyone post this yet in the main miniatures group for kickstarter projects on facebook? (though yes i realize there aren minis here. Cant we count the mini cardboard pieces as minis? lol)

    11. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 26

      Getting close to the final 48 hours people!
      The FAQ's have been updated and a new update will be coming out shortly!

      We did some demos and showed off the game at the 7th annual Field Marshal Gaming Convention this past weekend and had a good time! We're considering attending Breakout Con in Toronto once again in March as well - if all goes well we'll have product on hand ;)

      A hearty thank you to all those who pledged over the past few days while we were at FMGCon! What a pleasant surprise to come back to!

    12. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 24

      For group pledges message us and we can work out the shipping rates

    13. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 24

      Hi Brian! Yes, for up to one additional copy add $59 to your pledge (no added shipping for one additional copy)

      Brian Wheeler on September 24

      If I want an additional copy of the game with all the stretch goals can I just add the amount for that pledge level to my current pledge?

      I've been designing this summer a game similar to this one, so I cheer for you in a "semi-cooperative" way, in the true spirit of the game ;) XD

      One of the thing I had was a mechanism for "darkness", but that was because my game had more of an "Aliens" style (a mix between Firefly and Aliens with a touch of Space Hulk)

      Come on, let's do this!!

    16. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 21

      @New Comet Games: Thanks! We're pushing anywhere and everywhere we can think of! Thanks for the help, much appreciated!

      Here is hoping for a great last week. You are right at 50% funded with 1 week left, this is where you need to really push and do some advertising. You can still do this. I'll be sharing it.

    18. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 17

      We have added the Gaming Knights Preview/Play Through video to the campaign page! Check it out for a (mostly correct) play through! (yeah, everyone gets rules wrong, even I get them wrong and I designed the thing!)

    19. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 17

      We have a lot of ideas on additions and expansions for this game .. what would you like to see added?

      Let us know and we'll look at ways to make it work within the constraints of Into the Black: Boarding Party or one of the planned expansions!

    20. Bradley on September 14

      Ahoy! Just getting into character. I must say I am excited to play the final version of the game. I have played in the early phases and it was quite fun. One of my favourite mechanics of the game is its replay ability. In true pirate form I love the trader mechanic and the fact you have your own personal objective. I encourage all viewing to give this game a chance and back the project.

    21. Bradley on September 14

      RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR!!

    22. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 14

      Thanks Joachim and Philip!

      We are certainly trying to get those backers in to fund! Any help is appreciated.

      About half way, in both time and funding. Steady, folks, steady!

    25. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 8

      A hearty welcome to all the new backers in the past 24 hours!

      A new update is on its way tomorrow!

    26. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 7

      @Phil - Entirely possible, of course, on the funding. Regarding the stretch goals, we've been working on an exciting deal that should lead an announcement about being able to adjust our manufacturing to include several of the planned stretch goals in the base funding amount! Stay tuned!

      This looks like a great game - however I do think that is going to struggle with the funding and that it will only make a couple of stretch goals, if any at all

    28. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 6

      Absolutely we will give more updates with other aspects as we go, including combat resolution!

      While Dead of Winter was one of the (several) inspirations in designing Into the Black, the goals + traitor element and the ability to search for items is where the similarities with DoW ends.

      Feel free to download the rules (linked on the campaign page) to see more now!

      We've also added the preview print and play files (enough to get you a good idea of the game, all subject to minor changes in wording and balancing and graphic design improvements prior to publication)

      Ayás on September 6

      While reading last update i couldnt stop thinking about the similarities with Dead of Winter. I like the theme and i backed it but discounting the fact that this game is a dungeon crawler the rest is the same as DoW. Will we have an update about the combat mechanic?

    30. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 3

      Although if you mean the Reputation markers (the purple cubes) they are planned to be translucent plastic (wood was used for the prototypes because of availability)

    31. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 3

      @Daniel Richardson - Are you talking about the event markers and damage tokens? It's a possibility if we get enough backers to make it feasable!

    32. Daniel Richardson

      Think the tokens should be plastic

      Great it's the wife's birthday in May so thought it will work well to name it after her as a birthday present :)

    34. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 3

      @Anthony Burton - Yes, when the campaign ends we will contact each backer in order for naming characters. Thanks!

    35. Missing avatar

      Anthony Burton on September 3

      Regarding the naming of a charecter will you be in contact after the campaign has ended to discuss this? And love the look of the game

    36. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 1

      @Doctor Zaius: We've played around with the idea of getting the traitor mechanic to work in a solo game but so far nothing has tested well. It's tough to do when you're playing solo. More than open to suggestions or fan variations though!

      However, playing a solo game already puts you at a slight disadvantage; 2 playable characters under your total control + the Henchman who, quite frankly usually dies off fast.

      I am really looking forward to getting this to the table. Is there a possible way of keeping the traitor mechanic in a solitare game?

    38. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 1

      @Kurt - Ah, don't we all hope it funds? :D

      Regarding the word party, a "boarding party" is the common term for "a group of persons who board a vessel, especially to attack, seize, or search it" .. and since that's what the space pirates you are playing are doing, as a group, it fits the theme.

    39. Kurt Temmerman
      Superbacker

      I really hope it gets funded cause the more I see it the more I like it.

    40. Kurt Temmerman
      Superbacker
      on September 1

      @creator I know it's not that's why I pledged and do like it. I referred to not liking the word 'party'.

    41. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on September 1

      @Kurt.. Most definitely not a family/party type of game. Its much closer to games like Dead of Winter with Betrayal at House on the Hill added in.

      I am sure some of the backers here who have played already (play testers and convention demos) can confirm that its not so simple and definitely not a kids game.

    42. Kurt Temmerman
      Superbacker
      on September 1

      More missions as sg or add - ons are truly appreciated. But I really like your idea and fair price.

    43. Kurt Temmerman
      Superbacker
      on September 1

      @creator I already pledged but wanted to say that I hesitated because I dislike party in a game . It sounds like a family party game. Like childish, simple. Could be only me. I do think that your game could surprise me in a good way. I like cards that serve as corridors and have other setups for other scenarios.

      Jason Price on September 1

      I got the big one. I have a few ideas for a character and im sure we will juggle some ideas around. I am very excited for the game. I know you have put sooooo much effort into... Great job

    45. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on August 31

      @Marc - Yes indeed, the Captain is a woman! I'll be sure to get a comprehensive list of all the characters in an update sometime in the next week or so, as well as how we'll deal with naming (essentially it will be first backed, first choice of character to name, though we're certainly open to you all sorting it out in a friendly manner if you wish)!

      @Gonzalo - Thanks, appreciate the comment!

      @Jeffid, haven't seen a definitive list of the characters yet, just bits and pieces, but at the moment probably leaning towards the Captain. Getting it for my son, but I can't tell, is the captain female?

    47. Gonzalo Hernan Ortego on August 31

      Wow! This game look great! Good luck! Greetings from Argentina!

    48. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on August 31

      Kurt : Indeed! A minis game without the overpriced minis.

      I will be clear up front; we do not plan to include minis but we DO have some improvements over standard meeples planned as stretch goals �

    49. I Will Never Grow Up Gaming 2-time creator on August 31

      Thanks for backing everyone!

      Yes absolutely all 10 characters are looking for good names. We have some in mind if there are any leftover but we love to see what you can all come up with!

    50. Jeffid Rebelo

      Got the 2nd character name slot; assuming all 10 need names? @Marc which character were you wanting to name?
